Quotes from the Jackson Ledger: "Very little is known of William Jackson and his children except that they lived on Sycamore in Harrison County until they determined to go West. They started to the Little Miami Valley, Ohio in the 1800 but since that (time) nothing has been learned. Recent investigation at Winchester, KY finds a Romulus and W. D. Jackson who trace to their father Elias and Grandfather William Jackson which is the nearest trace yet obtained."

"We have good reason to believe that part of the fly leaf in the Bible from which other names were gotten contained possibly the names of other children. There was possibly a William and Jacob but it requires better evidence to positively substantiate."

Quote from Roy B. Cook, 1928: "William Jackson, son of Edward W. Jackson, emigrated to Ohio in 1828, and settled near Wesley Chapel, M.E. church in Salem (now Harlan) Township, Warren County, Ohio, about two miles from Blanchester, Ohio, on State Route #28."

William and his wife, Hannah, are also mentioned in Hardesty's Historical Hand-Atlas as migrating to Warren County, Ohio in 1828; and being the parents of Benjamin B. Jackson of Paulding Co, OH.

From a descendant of Wm. & Hannah: "1828 was the year that most of the family immigrated to the Virginia Military District in southern Ohio. This land was made available to Revolutionary and War of 1812 veterans and their families."

From Family Records compiled by Matella Prickett Doughman, published 1935: "William Jackson served in the War of 1812."
